David Lloyd Leisure (DLL) has continued its expansion drive with the announcement of a new £10m health club at Rouken Glen in Glasgow.

Due to open in August 2016 next to Rouken Glen Park, the new site will be DLL’s 94th club and its third in Glasgow. It follows the official launch last month of the £9.3m DLL Newbury and announcement of a new club in Colchester (opening Autumn 2016), as the gym chain kicks on after its recent £350m sale and leaseback deal with M&G Investments.

Construction company Pellikaan has already started work on the new 4,902sq m (52,765sq ft) club, which will feature tennis and sports facilities, an extensive fitness area with three indoor exercise studios, plus an 18-hole golf course and dedicated driving range. There will also be indoor and outdoor swimming pools, an indoor spa and spa garden, plus a dedicated zone for children’s activities.

The 510sq m (5,490sq ft) gym will be a focal point of the club and has been designed to “activate the senses” with a strong emphasis on technology and personal training. It will feature designated exercise zones centred around functional training; sports performance; community; strength; cardio; and stretch. The gym will be supplied by a number of DLL partners including Life Fitness, Octane Fitness, Wattbike and Woodway.

“We have been lucky enough to have secured a stunning location on the edge of Rouken Glen Park and it will provide the area with a fantastic club offering unrivalled facilities, services, programmes and expertise for members to achieve their health and fitness goals,” said DLL Rouken Glen’s new GM Willie Dunne, who previously headed up the team at nearby DLL Renfrew.

“Whether you’re coming for an early morning workout, brushing up on your tennis skills, taking a dip in the pool at lunchtime or catching up with your friends, David Lloyd Rouken Glen will aim to be an integral part of members’ lives that caters to their every health, sports and leisure need.”
